I'm aware he doesn't refer to himself as a hero, but that doesn't make him any less of a HERO, so I don't think we're all going to stop any time soon!

Not only is he recognized as a hero to I'M SURE the many lives he saved inside the Antioch, TN Waffle House over the weekend..but he is getting recognized for his bravery all across the nation and even in Hollywood!

A journalist by the name of Yashar Ali launched a GoFundMe for James Shaw Jr. with a goal of $50k. Ali, claims he was SO inspired by Shaw's story that he wanted to give back, raise money for him, something to maybe pay for his daughter's college fund, or even go on a nice family vacation, ANYTHING he wants. He deserves it!

We’re extremely proud of this brother, James Shaw Jr., the 29-year-old who bravely wrestled a gun away from the active shooter at a Tennessee Waffle House. Praying for the families of those who lost their lives and grateful that this brother was able to stop him before more lives were lost. πŸ™πŸΏ #BlackExcellence #MCM

"Part of the reason I decided to start this is James, after putting his life on the line, started a @gofundme for the victims. He really represents the best of America and I think we should help him too," he tweeted yesterday.

So far, more than 2,000 people have donated to our local/national hero. With donations passing the original goal of $50k so quickly, the goal has been changed and raised to $75k!

Shaw also created a GoFundMe of his own to help the victims which has already raised over $100k!
